Cake Mix Cookies I

Rated as 4.49 out of 5 Stars

"A friend gave me this recipe several months ago. I have tried several variations including using a carrot cake mix with white chocolate chips and chocolate cake mix with butterscotch chips - the variety is endless! Note: I haven't had a great deal of success in storing these cookies more than one or two days. They seem to toughen up rather quickly."

These are great cookies. The secret to keeping them ( or any cookies ) fresh is to place a slice of bread in the storage container.

I've never been a fan of yellow cake, but this recipe gives me a good reason to keep it around. These won't pass for 'regular' cookies in my house, but they're sweet and satisfy the cookie crav...

I used applesauce instead of oil for this recipe and it was great. The flavor is still great, and it seriously cuts down on fat and calories.

I wanted to whip up a batch of cookies to give away but didn't have butter so this was the perfect answer. I should mention that I turned oven oven before I started and by the time I had these ...

I make this and several variations in a 9x13 pan as bar cookies...They are quick,easy and delish!!

Awesome and easy! I'm a fairly good cook but baking has proven to be more of a challenge to me than I'd expected. These are idiot proof! I added an extra egg since it seemed dry and I've read...

So Easy! I used Lemon cake mix, added 1 tsp lemon extract and 1 c. fresh cranberries. Bake 13 min, cool 1 min. before removing. Wow! Moist and firm, not crumbly or dry yet. Made Tb. size- o...

Try using cake mix, 1 egg, and an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip. I think you will find the cookies will keep longer.

Try it with a fudge cake mix, 1/2 cup toffee chips, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/4 cup chopped nuts. It's much better as a chocolate cookie.
